All my life I’ve been told that a good glass of freshly squeezed Orange juice helps you fight against the Winter colds and flu. I am a good girl and a very obedient one, so… when cold weather shows you will always find oranges in my kitchen counter :D. I have recently discovered that Kiwis contain more Vitamin C than Oranges, so if you like them better, go and get your Kiwis juice done or simply eat them first thing in the morning. If you do so, you can help your body in many other ways… if you know what I mean… ;D.
Also, if you have an iron deficiency and you combine spirulina algae with Vitamin C you will enhance the power of the spirulina’s iron. And therefore fight the Anemia sooner and better.
According to Medline:
Research shows that, for most people, vitamin C supplements or foods rich in this vitamin do not reduce the risk of catching the common cold.
However, people who take vitamin C supplements regularly might have slightly shorter colds or somewhat milder symptoms.
Taking a vitamin C supplement after a cold start does not seem to serve.
However, Vitamin C will still help us in:
Forming an important protein used to make skin, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels.
Healing wounds and form scar tissue.
Repairing and maintaining cartilage, bones and teeth.
